Flip Festival 2019: Trashformations!
Announcing Flip Festival at the Bend Habitat for Humanity ReStore!
The 5th Annual Furniture Flip Design Challenge, sponsored by DIY Cave, has returned to the Bend ReStore. This year, the popular event – during which creative Central Oregonians transform discarded furniture, home accessories and/or building materials into something new and noteworthy — is expanding: Known as “Flip Festival 2019,” it spans two weeks and includes a live construction event and artist demonstrations.
The Fest kicks off on Saturday, April 6 with the rebirth of the beloved community event “Trashformations,” originally held at Pak-it Liquidators. During this one-day marathon arts project, local artists, welders, DIY’ers, crafters and curious folks will gather at the Bend ReStore and convert leftover, broken, discarded or otherwise unloved items into one-of-a-kind sculptures, artworks, furniture and garden art. You’re invited to come watch the creativity unfold!
